The Delaware Department of Transportation announces to the public that the Lewes-to-Georgetown Trail will be closed from Cool Spring Road to Savannah Road in Lewes. The closure is due to required herbicide application for vegetation control.
The trail will be closed at 7 p.m., Monday, Aug. 10, until 5 a.m., Friday, Aug. 11, pending weather.
The original date of Aug. 6 and the rain date of Aug. 7 were not suitable due to weather.
The Delaware Department of Transportation and its hired contractor only apply herbicides that are registered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for vegetation control purposes. The EPA has determined through its testing and review process that when these herbicides are applied according to the label instructions, their application "poses no unreasonable risks to human health, wildlife, or the environment."
